Hello, and thank you for your interest. If you are a new visitor to, please have a look around the site and let us know what you think of it.

We are trying to develop the site as a general forum and resource for people living in the Loxley Valley. We will also use it as a focal point for the important campaign to prevent a new township being built on the old Hepworth site in the heart of the valley.

You may want to contribute to our noticeboard, which carries details of local events. We have also set up a discussion forum, where you can share thoughts with your neighbours about local issues. Please feel free to join in and set up your own topics if you wish.

If you live in the area, you should have received a letter recently, keeping you up-to-date with developments on the Hepworth site. We also sent you a window poster that you can display to show your support. If you would like another copy of this, you can download it from our Hepworth campaign page.

The website is supported by the Loxley Valley Protection Society, the Loxley Valley Design Group, the Campaign to Protect Rural England, and representatives of Bradfield Parish Council.

If you have anything to tell us, or would like to help with the campaign, please do get in touch. You can e-mail us at 2006
